ASHE 2020 Session Information

Paper Sessions | Interactive Symposia | Roundtable Session | Poster Session | ​Performance, Visual, and Digital Scholarship Sessions

The information below is intended to help presenters, chairs, and discussants better navigate ASHE 2020.
 
We want to share that this is ASHE’s first-ever virtual conference. We have been working on this conference since June of 2019 and shifted to the virtual format in July 2020. We’ve poured much time and attention into these resources, however, it is possible (and perhaps likely) that we missed something or something is not as clear as it could be.

We hope you will reach out to ASHE Conference Coordinator James Hines at james@ashe.ws with any questions, comments, or concerns. This will help us ensure the resources we provide to you and your fellow ASHE members are as inclusive as possible.

Interactive Symposia

Based on symposia proposals and capabilities of the Virtual Conference, we've identified two formats for 2020 Interactive Symposia Presentations. *Note for presenters: This type of presentation also includes Presidential Sessions and Invited Sessions.

For both formats, proposal submitters will be contacted by the ASHE Office in early October to confirm the format; for Format 2 presenters, a schedule of the session is due to the ASHE Office by October 26 at 4:00pm Pacific to ensure we're able to best support you logistically.

Format 1- Panelists Interaction: During Interactive Symposium sessions with Panelists Interaction, only Presenters will be on screen during the entire presentation; attendees do not have the ability to interact with their camera or microphone. This type of sessions focuses on the panelists interacting with each other, rather than attendees interacting with panelists and in breakout rooms (this is Format 2).



Format 2- Panelists & Attendees Interaction: During Interactive Symposium sessions with Panelists and Attendee Interaction, Presenters and Attendees will be on screen during the entire presentation. Attendees will be able to participate through video and use of their mics. This also allows for breakout rooms. This type of sessions focuses on the panelists interacting with each other as well as attendees, rather than just panelists interacting with each (this is Format 1).

Roundtable presentations provide a forum for scholars to engage in active discussion with other conference participants about a completed research project or about a project in developing stages. It is an opportunity for authors to share information in an informal, conversational style.
